Finding Joy

Thanks to a friend who posted a very uplifting blog post and is starting a 1,000 moments of grace, I have decided to go right along with her and try each day to find the positive side in life. Like she stated in her blog it's hard sometimes to not let little things drag you down and ruin your whole day so here's to the next 1,000 days (or so ).

Day #1 I am thankful for a 2 1/2 year old who wants me to play with him and box, and wrestle.
Soon this little boy will want nothing to do with his mama and right now until his little sister comes we only have this time for just us. Then we will have to make time without sister to hang out and do our own thing. I know there are days where it can be so frustrating or when I am dead tired, but I need to realize he just wants to hang out and be with his mom. And I am thankful for the opportunity to be his mom.

Thanks Courtney for the idea for this and I hope to gain a better perspective each day in knowing I am looking for positive instead of dreading the negative.

  1. This is a great idea, what I dislike about this first entry is that Boone is getting older! I don't want him to because he's going to get all independent and not want us as much. You're right though, we need to take the time that we have now and spend all we can with him at this age.
